Upcoming STLQAA Event


Hi everyone, I wanted to let you all know of an upcoming STLQAA event. 


Meeting Coordinates:


Date: 05/15/2014

Time: 5 PM – 8 PM

12312 Olive Blvd., St. Louis MO 63146
Conference room #5 (6th floor, Suite 650)

Parking:           Parking is available in garage across street from building.

The focus for this event is on mobile application testing.  If you’re working in the quality assurance space and are interested in learning more about this subject, then I encourage you to attend the event.  I’ll be there.

The event’s speaker, Alejandro Ramirez, has more than 16 years of IT experience across fields like finance, e-commerce, biotech, education, and mobile development.  His IT journey began at age 12 when he started programming in BASIC on his Commodore 64 and shows no sign of slowing down.  Alejandro has also spent time as development lead, software developer engineer in test, and test lead.  In his day time job Alejandro works as a project manager for IT service management at Monsanto, and in his spare time he teaches testing courses at CAIT and a as if that wasn't enough he and a friend are working on, a mobile development startup here in St. Louis.  Alejandro is also St. Louis Vivit member and his day-employer, Monsanto is an HP customer. 

For those of you familiar with STLQAA, you probably already know Alejandro, as he’s a former board member of that group and frequent contributor to their events.  For those of you not familiar with them, now’s the time to become acquainted.  STLQAA is a local chapter of the Quality Assurance Institute (QAI) and prides itself on raising quality assurance standards by improving its members’ body of knowledge and abilities through discussion, training, and certification.  Most of its presenters are practitioners living and working in the St. Louis area and all of them have had long, successful careers around software quality assurance.  So I encourage you to check them out – I almost always learn something by attending these events and feel that they do our community a great service.

And now the disclaimers… this is not a Vivit event, but since STLQAA helps us out, I like to return the favor.  Rest assured that Vivit values your privacy and only shares information with third parties when directed by the member to do so.  Also, STLQAA is at least in part funded by a paid membership model.  Guests may attend meetings for free in order to determine whether they want to become members and are encouraged to join if value the content received.  For more information about STLQAA, click the following link:
